Royal Vauxhall Ed2016

One night, three legends and the Royal Vauxhall Tavern. Join Princess Diana, Freddie Mercury and Kenny Everett as they shun the limelight, venturing into the night to escape their individual realities and responsibilities. Taking place over one night in London in 1988, ‘Royal Vauxhall’ explores the lives of three public figures that led tragically short lives. This is a brilliantly funny new musical – the writing is witty and fun, and the songs will have you dancing along in no time. All three performances are outstanding, with each performer perfectly capturing their character – no mean feat when each is so well known and loved. Highly recommended to anyone looking for some tongue-in-cheek 80s goodness.

Underbelly Med Quad, until 29 Aug.
